ANOTHER NIGERIAN MAN  ALLEGEDLY KILLED BY SA POLICE MEN IN SASOLBURG

ANOTHER NIGERIAN MAN ALLEGEDLY KILLED BY SA POLICE MEN IN SASOLBURG

Nigerians in South Africa have been living in utter fear, muttering to one another whose turn will be next in the ongoing killing spree of black immigrants in the Rainbow nation. They are being slaughtered every now and again like cows, and in some cases even burnt alive without provocation, as if they live in a Hobbesian society (state of nature) where life is brutish, nasty, dirty and short. We were shocked when we received the news about the recent murder of another Nigerian in Sasolburg, South Africa. The Nigerian Consulate in Johannesburg condemns the act of crime and the press release is as follows;

The Consulate General of Nigeria in Johannesburg regrets to announce the death on 15th January, 2019 of a Nigerian national Mr. Paul Celestine Nwakeocha in circumstances which point to the complicity of officials of South African Police.

On that day, officials of the South African Police in Sasolburg raided the residence of the deceased at no: 21, Erasmus Street, Sasolburg on the allegation that the deceased was in possession of drugs. Eyewitnesses confirmed that the deceased was chased from his residence and beaten severely by the Police Officers until he passed out. The real culprits then took the corpse to the mortuary and further alleged that the deceased swallowed drugs during arrest, resulting in his death. However, autopsy conducted on the corpse indicated otherwise.

The Consulate detests in the strongest terms infringements of the law by security agents and demands compliance with the due process of the law if it suspects infringement by anyone.

The Consulate is already in discussion with the relevant host authorities and would ensure that justice is done and the affected Police Officers brought to justice.

Meanwhile, the Consulate enjoins members of the deceased’s family, friends, associates and indeed the entire Nigerian Community in Sasolburg to remain calm and law-abiding as the Consulate seeks justice for the deceased.
